About this event

Understanding Dementia Better:

During this session, our expert training team will support you to understand dementia better, offering you small and easy steps that can make a big difference.

The 2-hour sessions are informal, and a great opportunity to meet and learn from other people in similar situations to you.

We actively encourage questions, which you can ask during the session or send to us before-hand.

You can expect to understand,

  • The common symptoms of dementia.
  • How dementia can affect the senses, communication and behaviour.
  • The importance of seeing the person before the condition.
  • Practical ways to connect with a person with dementia.
  • Strategies to overcome communication barriers.
  • Solutions for adapting the environment.
  • The benefits of a connection with nature and the outdoors.

Following the session, we will send you an email with a link to resources we mention throughout the session.
